Just finished a 3 night 4 day stay at the Sunset Campground in Cavendish PEI. This was our first stay at a Non Provincial or Federal campground since being a teenager and was not sure what to expect.

I must say with the exception of water pressure in the public restrooms we were extremely impressed. Upon registering and pulling into our spot the first thing we noticed was either the lack of garbage or the extreme cleanliness of the site. There was not a piece of trash anywhere to be seen. The entire site had been raked clean including the fire pit (the old Transport truck rim type) was lifted and the ashes were raked and removed. This was the way it was for every site.

The first night was a bit new to me, we had a guy next to us breaking branches (making what I though was a lot of noise) from 2:00am to 5:00am and burning them, I did not see any security walking around enforcing the noise restrictions (something I seen a lot of in the Provincial and Federal campgrounds). But hey, it was Canada day weekend and it was a party at most sites.

Night 2 we learned if we turned the exhaust fan on then we heard nothing (maybe his noise was not nearly as loud as we thought, just loud because of the quietness).

The washrooms and free showers were cleaned a minimum of 3 times per day, no smells and not a spot of garbage anywhere. The one place they were lacking was in the water pressure in both the sinks and showers. It could only be described as a slow drizzle out of the spouts, when in on my last day the person cleaning mentioned they were having pressure issues and the toilets were not flushing properly so he had a call out to see what was up in the facility (considering the immaculate condition of the rest of the campground I will have to think this as a one off).

They had plenty of play parks for the kids throughout the campground (I believe it was either 3 or 4), a pool, a miniature golf course, and even hay rides.

Overall thoughts, I would give them a 4.5 out of 5 and would highly recommend giving them a try. I will be going back and if it was indeed a one off with the water pressure then I would change it to a 5 out of 5.

Stayed there in a tent years ago. Had issues with noise and lack of security dealing with it, complained to staff at the time, nothing happened, just "oh well"

I wrote and MAILED a letter to the owner complaining and never heard back from them.
